Addiction Detox Rowlett

Addiction Detox Rowlett

Addiction is a complex medical condition that requires addiction detox or detoxification. Across Rowlett, Texas & the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex individuals, families, communities, and agencies are struggling to cope with substance use disorders. The devastating effects of substance use disorders, disrupt the dreams and plans of the younger generations and deteriorate the health of middle age to older adults. For some people, substance use disorders become so severe that the medical condition will impact a person’s life to the point that their lives will end prematurely and tragically.

What is a substance use disorder?

Substance use disorders are primary biopsychosocial conditions that result from the use of mind-altering substances by people who have biopsychosocial (Physical, psychological, and social) risk factors that positively reinforce continued use of mind-altering substances and negatively reinforce abstinence. This is at the heart of a substance use disorder the complete inability to leave the substance alone for fear of becoming abstinent and experiencing withdrawal symptoms.

Neurobiology of Addiction 

Most people who become addicted to alcohol, opioids, sedative drugs like benzodiazepines (Xanax®), and stimulant drugs (Methamphetamines, Amphetamines & Cocaine) involve neurobiological changes that occur when a person transitions from recreational substance use to a substance use disorder or addiction. While addiction is complex disorder Summer Sky Treatment Center provides effective addiction detox programs & substance use disorder treatment services.

Addiction Detox Centers Manage Withdrawal Symptoms

The withdrawal syndrome involves a group of symptoms that an individual experiences when they discontinue the use of an addictive substance. Many people will go through negative emotions such as stress, anxiety, or depression. However, when a person enters medical detox, the medical staff will monitor these symptoms and ensure that interventions are available to people in their care so that an individual can safely detoxify from whatever addictive substance is causing the withdrawal symptoms. In addition to emotional & psychological withdrawal symptoms, a detox facility will also help a person deal with physical effects such as nausea, vomiting, muscle aches, and cramping, among other symptoms. Failure to utilize the services of a detox program for withdrawal symptoms often leads a person to use the substance again.

Why Do People Develop a Tolerance to Addictive Substances?

Tolerance to an addictive substance involves changes and alterations in the body’s responsiveness to an addictive substance. The individual will require a higher dose or greater amount of the substance to produce the same effect achieved during initial use. While the individual will eventually experience a diminished response to the addictive substance. Some people will increase the amount of a substance through repeated or prolonged exposure to the drug while their body allows physiological processes to achieve stability.

Addiction Detoxification Programs

Addiction detoxification is the process of eliminating an addictive substance from the body by utilizing interventions that are aimed at managing acute intoxication and withdrawal. The process of detoxification involves clearing any associated toxins related to intoxication, and dependency from a substance-related disorder. When utilizing the Summer Sky Detox Programs, we will dramatically reduce or minimize the physical symptoms of withdrawal. Addiction detox is primarily responsible for utilizing medical interventions that manage an individual’s safety while eliminating the addictive substance through the process of acute withdrawal.

It is important to note that addiction detoxification is not substance use treatment or rehabilitation, but it is a component of the overall substance use disorder treatment process. Detox is one part of the treatment process and used alone will only accomplish the immediate removal of a substance from the body. Treatment involves detox & other treatment protocols following the completion of the detox process.
